Settlement, burial and industry in Roman Godmanchester: excavations in the extra-mural area ; The Parks 1998, London Road 1997-8, and other investigations
This volume reports on two main excavations at The Parks (1998) and London Road (1997-1998) carried out in Godmanchester (Cambridgeshire), plus a series of other smaller investigations. Excavations at both sites revealed prehistoric activity although the main focus was on the Romano-British evidence. At The Parks this included a 4th-century cemetery, evidence for early Romano-British land-division and 2nd- to 3rd-century pottery production, and at London Road evidence was revealed for ditched enclosures, a timber-framed building and industrial and livestock activities. A general overview and synthesis of the evidence, which includes a series of small finds, pottery and environmental reports, is given at then end.
